Last night was a fun night at the Anderson County High School with the start of the 2015 Bearcat basketball season. The 23rd Annual Cat Madness was filled with basketball, singing, honor and celebration. It started off in the afternoon with the Alumni Game which was played by former members of the ACHS team, both young and old. The teams were divided into red and blue with the red team being victorious with a winning score of 78-60.

By early evening, the Lady Bearcats got onto the court against the Nelson County Lady Cardinals. With lots of great shots and awesome teamwork, the ladies are now ready to face the 2015 season with not only a winning spirit but the skills to do the job.

Between the boys and girls games, there were special recognitions and performances. A dedication was made to our two fallen officers, Officer Kenny Goodlett and State Trooper Eric Chrisman with a number of state troopers attending the ceremony. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Color Guard was also present, and the ACHS Advanced Chorus sang the national anthem. And before the start of the boys game, Nashville recording artist, JD Shelburne, sang his latest song “Hometown” with a number of students participating in the creation of a video. In addition, both the ACES quartete and the ACHS Dance team performed during the event.

After the performance, the boys game started against the Woodford County Yellowjackets. The boys were strong and held their own against the Yellowjackets. In between the quarters of the game, Courtney Milam, Rayna Warford, and Ramsey Nicholson along with JD Shelburne sang a number of songs to entertain the large crowd attending the game.

At halftime, everyone got to enjoy the fun of a 3-point shootout between local Bearcat fans and players. Two teams were created with John Herndon, ACHS girls’ player Kaci Currens, Judge Executive Orbrey Gritton, and ACHS principal Chris Glass forming Team Herndon and JD Shelburne, ACHS player Dillon Harper, ACHS Athletic Director Rick Sallee, and Marcus Young forming Team Shelburne. JD Shelburne threw the winning shot to much celebration.

And to finish out the night, Jerry Sheridan won the grand prize raffle of $5000. This coming year looks great for the Bearcats basketball teams and we wish them much luck as they head into the regular season.
